TELUS Student Bursary

***TELUS Student Bursary is CLOSED and no longer accepting applications. We thank you for your interest and encourage you to reapply next year*** 

At TELUS Friendly Future Foundation, we’re committed to helping youth reach their full potential. We understand that not all youth have equal opportunities or resources, including access to higher education. Being able to obtain a college diploma or university degree opens doors for youth to gain skills, launch careers and become the changemakers of tomorrow.

Our Why: While many student award programs are focused on recognizing academic achievement, the TELUS Student Bursary invites all students who are experiencing financial need and who are committed to making a difference in their communities to apply.

Who is eligible to apply:

  • Able to demonstrate critical financial need (see guidelines )
  • Between the ages of 17 and 29 at time of the application deadline
  • Accepted into or attending a first full-time undergraduate degree or diploma program at a college, university or polytechnic institute in Canada
  • A Canadian citizen, permanent resident, protected person or convention refugee
  • Committed to making a positive social or environmental impact during their studies

The TELUS Student Bursary will support:

  • NEED, not merit: We want to help students experiencing financial need pursue higher education.
  • ANY AND ALL PROGRAMS: Bursaries of $3,000 for college and $5,000 for university are available to pay for tuition and other academic fees in any program.
  • ANY YEAR OF STUDY: Students in any year of study in a first degree or diploma program can apply.
  • GIVING BACK: We are looking to support students who are committed to making a difference in their communities by taking on a social impact initiative over the course of their degree or diploma (see application form or Program Guidelines for inspiration and examples of ways to help change the world).

What makes the TELUS Student Bursary unique?

  • Long-term support from TELUS: We know it takes more than just education to be successful. Additional support offered to Recipients may include potential mentorship opportunities, networking, and access to discounted TELUS mobility and Internet services.
  • Long-term TELUS support: We know it takes more than the education you will receive to be successful. Our well-rounded offering includes potential mentorship, career guidance, internships, and access to discounted phone and Internet services.
